I have been doing these biscuits for as long as I can remember. They are my go to recipe when I need a quick biscuit recipe. They work perfectly with a cup of afternoon coffee or tea. But the best thing about this recipe is its versatility: you can manipulate this recipe in so many ways and end up with fun and amazing results!
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup butter (around 200 grams)
- 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Jam for filling, optional (you can use the flavor you like best, in the quantity of your taste)
- Place flour, butter, powdered sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla in a food processor. Mix well until the ingredients start getting together.
- Remove the mix and kneed well until combined in a dough. Refrigerate for one hour at least.
- Add a small amount of flour on your mat and spread half of the dough until thin (0.3 cm). Cut with cookie cutter into desired shapes. If you want to fill it with the jam, remember to punch a hole in half of the cookies that will be on top.
- Repeat for the second half of the dough.
- Put the Sablé cookies on a nonstick pan and place in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celsius. They should take around 12-15 minutes to attain their nice golden color.
- Wait till the cookies have completely cooled down before transferring them.
7. Coat the upper biscuit (with the hole) with powdered sugar. Place a teaspoon of jam on the lower biscuit. Assemble each two pieces together.
- You don’t have to assemble them together using jam. Sablé are good enough on their own. A nice twist would be dipping them in melted chocolate or covering them with powdered sugar.
- You can make them chocolate flavored Sablé by replacing some of the flour with cocoa powder.
- You can make the dough ahead of time and freeze it. Then, whenever you need to make them, you can take them out of the freezer ahead of time.
Highly recommended cookies! They are rich, buttery and to die for.
